Treasure Island

Andy Caldwell


Dark Light of My Soul


In the dark light of my soul
I get through one more night
the pain increases relentlessly
all I hear is silence
all I know is pain
Parkinson's controls
it shapes me as I am
into what I do not want to be
morphia flows inside of me
a poison not of humanity
then  I quietly pray
Lord guide my way
fight for me
I don't want die this way
as tears roll off my face
Lord take me peaceful as I sleep
my soul is Yours to love and keep

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
